ColorGradient Accessibility

Out of the box, the Kendo UI for Vue ColorGradient provides extensive accessibility support and enables users with disabilities to acquire complete control over its features.

The ColorGradient is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 AA standards]( and Section 508 requirements, follows the Web Accessibility Initiative - Accessible Rich Internet Applications (WAI-ARIA) best practices for implementing the keyboard navigation for its component role, provides options for managing its focus and is tested against the most popular screen readers.


This section lists the selectors, attributes, and behavior patterns supported by the component and its composite elements, if any.

ColorGradient Wrapping Element

.k-colorgradientrole=textboxThe focusable wrapper of the component should be considered a textbox. That signifies it has a value that could be submitted.
aria-label or aria-labelledbyThe component needs an accessible name to be assigned to it. Must also include the currently selected value in the component.
aria-invalid=trueAttribute is rendered only when the selected value in the component is not valid against the current validation rules.
tabindex=0The element must be focusable.
.k-colorgradient.k-disabledaria-disabled=trueAttribute is rendered only when the ColorPalette is disabled.

Drag handles

All the k-draghandle elements implement the Slider specification.

Slider accessibility specification

Apart from that the HSV draghandle must also cover the following additional requirements:

.k-hsv-draghandlearia-orientation=undefinedThe implicit orientation for the role="slider" must be removed.
aria-labelMust provide information about the purpose of the slider (for example: "Color well with two-dimensional slider for selecting saturation and lightness") and the currently selected color (for example: "X: 142, Y: 93").
aria-valuetextMust specify the values on both X and Y axis.


The Numeric inputs must implement the NumericTextBox specification.

NumericTextBox accessibility specification

Here is one additional requirement for those numerics as their visible labels have only a single letter as a tex:

.k-numerictextbox>.k-input-inneraria-labelMust provide information about the numeric input purpose - the name of the chanel it is aimed at (red chanel, green chanel, blue chanel, or alpha chanel).
